ELEUTHERA IS RICH WITH HISTORICAL LANDMARKS AND NATURAL ATTRACTIONS, the best way to explore it is by private rental vehicle or on a taxi tour which can be organized in resort. Stops of interest include: About two miles east of Upper Bogue and north of Gregory Town at the narrowest part of Eleuthera Island, which is just 30 feet wide, is the Glass Window Bridge. Striking rock formations make up the Glass Window Bridge. The land here, is high on either side and abruptly falls away to nearly sea level almost dividing the island in two You can stand in one spot and see the gray Atlantic Ocean to the west and Exuma Sound to the east. At the right tide and weather this area is also known for it numerous blow holes. Another interesting land formation on Eleuthera Island is The Cow &amp; The Bull about a mile south of the Glass Window Bridge. There are two large boulders, on one side, the boulder looks like a bull with two cows and on the other side, a bull with one cow. Both sets of boulders overlook the sea on both side, and when the weather is inclement and the wind passes through, the result is a roar that sounds like a bulls. Preachers Cave is a large unique cave about 2 miles east of Gene’s Bay. Founders who landed and were sheltered here made an alter and held vigils in the cave, giving it it’s namesake. If riding waves is your bag, then bring your gear and head out to Surfer’s Beach, just 2 miles south of Gregory Town, where southwest winds blow breaks in from the Atlantic. Even if you just want to watch, the 2 mile beach has some of the best sugary soft white sand in The Bahamas. Just South of Surfer’s Beach is Hatchet Bay Cave. The cave is a mile long and filled with stalagmites and stalactites which will take on the appearance of underground Cathedrals in your torch light. Centuries old graffiti of charcoal signatures line the walls. It’s recommended to tour with a cave guide. The waves at James Cistern Beach sometimes reach 10 feet due to a brisk southerly wind makes this another great surfing site at Eleuthera. There is also a shipwrecks just off shore, great for snorkeling when the water is calm. People often sought out the healing powers of Ocean Hole, rumored to be a bottomless, natural limestone wonder on the south edge of Rock Sound in Eleuthera. Filled with tropical fish and turtles who greet visitors, the brackish water is said to have medicinal purposes. Partake at your own risk. One of the best beaches in Eleuthera, some say even better than Pink Sands is a hidden gem called Lighthouse Beach. Located on the Atlantic side of Eleuthera Point behind some sand dunes is a fantastic secluded blush rose sand beach. With great snorkeling just a walk off the beach, it is a great place to pack a picnic basket and spend an entire romantic afternoon or sunset stroll with your better half.

While Cat Island has superb diving off its south shore where there is an abundance of caves and coral canyons to traverse, remote Cat Island is hardly touched by tourism, let alone commercialism. For those who want a sense of true African-Bahamian culture however, Cat Island is the perfect Out Island vacation destination. Cat Island is perfect for those travelers looking to discover their own way off the beaten path and who do not need a site-seeing map to historical places, because there isn’t going to be a packaged tour guide here. Outsiders are few, making this island the perfect destination for quiet soul searching seclusion. The natural beauty of its rose colored beaches and dramatic cliffs add to its charm. Most of the historical landmarks are churches, plantation ruins and old buildings. Eat a hearty breakfast then hike up the stone staircase of 206ft Como Hill to Mt. Alvernia Hermitage on Mount Alvernia, the highest point in The Bahamas. This small stone monastery built by hand by the architect hermit, Father Jerome, is at the peak and is worth the trek up this steep rocking incline, as well as the awe inspiring view. Just south of the Hermitage are the ruins of Armbrister Plantation. Armbrister Creek flows into a clear lake called “Boiling Point” or “Boiling Hole” whose tidal conditions cause bubbles and burps, the conditions which lead to folklore of a sea monster below its surface. Today, this is a great spot to spy rays and baby sharks and numerous birds that nest along its mangrove fringe. Located in Bain Town is another lake. This 65ft wide 10 ft deep lake called Mermaid Hole is where many believe a Mermaid lives amongst the 4 bed holes within that lead to underground caverns and passageways. The monster said to live in Big Blue Hole located near Orange Creek, just off of Dickies Road is said to devour horses. This deep blue hole has strong undersea currents that flow through its caverns linking to the sea, where many objects like dead farm animals tossed into the lake ended up. This folklore still scares local fisherman from venturing too far in this freshwater lake. Dickie’s Road goes east to Griffin Bat Cave, once a hideout for slaves. Sitting atop a ridge along side the road in the settlement of Old Bight is St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church another beautifully crafted legacy built by Father Jerome, with amazing frescos, engravings and sculptures. To get a look inside see Mrs. Burrow’s, a local woman in the house across the street to let you in. In the Port Howe area of Cat Island, see the ruins of an 18th-century plantation at Deveaux House mansion. In its glory days it was given to Colonel Andrew Deveaux in 1783 for protecting Nassau from Spanish invasion and occupation. Learn about the island’s history at Columbus World Centre Museum in Knowles, or visit the childhood home of Sir Sidney Poitier, Academy Award winner, in South Bight.
